Another Gem Dealer Is Found Murdered

Sheriff’s deputies in Key Largo, Florida, told police that the body of Haskell Kronenberg, a 27-year-old diamond salesman from New York’s diamond district had been found floating at the water’s edge of a mangrove-lined bay on 8/31.

He had been killed with a single bullet and apparently dumped in the bay. A large number of diamonds he was suppose to have had with him were missing. (?) His car was late found in Miami, 50 miles north, where he often went on sales trips.
